Support a Creative Entrepreneur $960.00

If you or your organization loves the mission of IAEOU and would like to become a donor, but you would prefer to give to the organization in a way that directly impacts a person, you will love Endorse a Creative Entrepreneur!

For a yearly donation of $960, you can directly support an applicant of the scholarship program to become a member of IAEOU for a year! By backing a new entrepreneur, you are giving that individual the chance to have an invaluable year of audience development skill building through mentorship, networking, public speaking, audience engagement and development, and building social media skills.
